Do you know where the gazebo is in the common? It is right by that. I think it is the intersection of rt 140 and main st (I think it is main). It is an amazing place.

i checked out the website, i'm pretty sure i know about where it is, but havent been there. Although i may check it out on saturday.... any recommendations? Also, have you been to Via italian table on shrewsbury st in worcester? ive been a few times and its pretty good.

Also, do you know of any good butcher's or meat markets in the area? I usually go to the meat market in worcester but they no longer have Boneless duck... any ideas where i could pick some up?

Anything there is good. You can't go wrong.

I have been to a number of places on Shrewsbury St, but have not been to Via Italian. I will have to check it out.

I am still searching for a good meat market here. I found a great fish place in Millbury on 140, but meat markets seem to be harder to come by for some reason.

its fairly new, and its owned by the same people who own the 111 chop house. good food, great atmosphere, quiet, and decent prices as well.

there is a great fish market with a great fruit stand right next to it on grafton st in worcester... its right off the milbury exit off the pike. There is a meat market on the 3rd exit off the round about at the end of shrewbury street. i think its on winter street. great meat market, good quality meat, good price. unfortunetly, they dont carry alot of the less common stuff anymore like quail or boneless duck.

i'm gonna go crazy if i cant find a place that sells boneless duck. i just de-boned one an hour ago and it was a pain.

Yep that is the one I was talking about. I thought it as Millbury, but you are probably right that it is Worcester. That fruit stand is great too.

Yeah I know what you mean. You can walk in there with pocket change and walk out with a shopping bag full of fruit.
